Klawervlei Stud's successful and inform stallion TWICE OVER (Observatory) has been in fine form of late, with his runners scoring all over South Africa recently.

The dual G1 Emirates Airline Champion Stakes winner was to the fore again this weekend, when Twice Over fillies dominated the finish of Sunday's G2 Track And Ball Oaks, run at Hollywoodbets Greyville.

Twice Over's four-year-old daughter MOON IN JUNE beat Twice Over's three-year-old daughter, and former Klawervlei Farm Sale graduate, BALLET SHOES when the pair finished first and third respectively in Sunday's postponed Track And Ball Oaks, with some top-class fillies and mares finishing further back in running.

Moon And June Klaw 2

Bred and owned by Bernard Kantor, Moon In June is trained by Robbie Hill and the classy filly was ridden to victory by Craig Zackey.

Moon In June, who took her earnings to R357 725 with her win on Sunday, has now won or placed in nine of her 16 starts.

Her promising paternal half-sister Ballet Shoes, third to unbeaten Triple Tiara winner SUMMER PUDDING (Silvano) in the G2 Wilgerbosdrift SA Oaks at her previous start, confirmed her promise when finishing less than two lengths off the winner, and it will surely not be long, before this Candice Dawson trained filly picks up a decent prize herself.

Also sire of dual Vodacom Durban July winner DO IT AGAIN, who will bid to make it three in a row when he lines up in Saturday's G1 Vodacom Durban July, Twice Over has had another good season in 2019-2020 with his other notable performers including R3 000 000 plus earner INVIDIA and Kenilworth Cup runner up SWIFT SURPRISE.

The four time G1 winning Twice Over has nine lots on offer at the upcoming Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
